Court rules in Airbnb’s favor in Berlin
Berlin passed a ban on renting one’s entire apartment to tourists through platforms such as Airbnb. Reason for it was the concern about limited available housing space and the affect that has on rising rental prices. However, a court ruling now opened a possibility for those who only have their second homes in Berlin. Means: Those who primarily live elsewhere than in Berlin can rent their space while being gone.
